Yesterday, the AFSCME demanded an apology from Scott Walker for his comparison between the American People and the terrorists of Daesh. Today, Elizabeth Warren — a noted fighter for the rights of the workers in this country — stepped up and slammed him for his comments as well.
During a speech at CPAC, Walker insinuated that his fight with the state labor unions had prepared him to deal with terrorist organizations like ISIL/Daesh. He claimed that, because he could handle “100,000” protesters, he was prepared to handle the duties he would face as a commander and chief.
Walker is a GOP favorite; he won the straw poll in Iowa, and many conservatives look up to him because he went his entire term without compromising with the Democrats. The scary thing is this: if Walker does get the nod, I think he has a very good chance at winning in 2016, depending on who the Dems put against him and how well the Republican plans to steal future elections go with their gerrymandering and electioneering fraud.
In the meantime, though, Walker’s caught a lot of heat for his remarks. And here to crank up that heat is Elizabeth Warren, who’s aligned herself with the interests of the American Worker. Warren took to Twitter, where she ripped into Walker on Saturday for his remarks:
If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it’s time we take a closer look at his friends.

I have just one thing to say to Walker and his buddies at ALEC:
